THE FALLS:

Silver Cascade is a tall mix of plunges and cascades that hop and skip from left to right down the southwestern side of Mount Jackson. The falls continue under US 302, eventually converging with the Saco River below the highway.
         Due to the ease of access, this waterfall has dazzled millions of tourists over the years, making it one of the most popular waterfalls in New England. You will understand why once you see the slender ribbon of water tumbling over ledges and through chasm walls. The falls are particularly beautiful during spring runoff and foliage season, and are heavily visited and photographed as a result.
         If you are like most of the visitors to this waterfall, you take a quick look from the road, snap two pictures, and walk back to your car. We suggest venturing beyond the roadside views, by climbing up and getting closer to the falls. If you do, you will find some unexpected privacy. Many of the great photographs we have seen of this waterfall are taken from such intimate spots.

Waterfalls, swimming holes, and hiking can be extremely dangerous. Hundreds of people have been injured or killed in the waterfalls and swimming holes of New England over the last 50 years. Never swim when the water currents seem like they are too high or strong. Use of this website and all of its information is at your own risk! Be safe out there - and always use common sense!
